Youtube VideoWho's it for: NZTA by Clemenger BBDO and The Sweet Shop

Why we like it: When it comes to social messaging, making at-risk groups feel bad about their behaviour often has a habit of leading to more of that bad behaviour.

Plus, 'you know I can't eat your ghost chips' has to be one of the lines of the year.
